In this time, Gengo is an unpopular ukiyoe artist, one who is especially fond of sleeping with and drawing erotic pictures of prostitutes. When he hears rumors of a mysterious clairvoyant woman, he quickly plans to meet her, draw her, and sleep with her. That mysterious woman is Kaede, who has built up a reputation using her future knowledge of the historical period.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Amasozoro was my favorite of the week. I'm curious to see how things will play out, and it's set in a very interesting time of history. It's also neat that it is focused on struggling artists, rather than warriors or politicians. Aoi Kokoro ga Chikyuu o Waru (Hazuru) was more of an adorable, innocent romance, but with the threat of a great disaster from Aoi's power. Kuroda-san to Katagiri-san is more for fans of slice-of-life comedy.
My opinion: Amasozoro
- If you're in the mood for a historical ecchi manga, then you might want to check this out.Aoi Kokoro ga Chikyuu o Waru (Hazuru)
- However, if you want some school life romance with some disasters thrown in, then check out this manga instead.Kuroda-san to Katagiri-san
- If, on the other hand, you want to know a bit about manga and are in the mood for a slice of life comedy, then this may be right up your alley.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
